One of the most highly-anticipated Marvel series is the teen dream team, The Runaways. It was previously announced that Hulu had picked up the series and that the Gossip Girl creators – Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, will serve as showrunners.
Earlier this week, Marvel announced who will be stepping into the shoes of the popular comic team who join together to stop a common foe – their parents. The cast includes Rhenzy Feliz (Casual) as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano (The Affair) as Nico Minoru, Virginia Gardner (The Goldbergs, Glee) as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer (One Day at a Time, New Girl) as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin (Faking It, Pretty Little Liars) as Chase Stein, and Allegra Acosta (100 Things to Do Before High School) as Molly Hernandez.
